John Crouch

Taos, New Mexico

My friend John is a world renowned leader in the livestock industry, having served in senior executive roles with the American Angus Association for 34 years. He is especially remembered for his leadership in advancing beef cattle genetics based in performance testing. He and his wife retired to Taos, where we reconnected quite coincidentally at a Rotary meeting early one morning. The folks in Taos don’t know much about John’s history on the global stage. They just see him as a wise, kind community leader who likes to make the world a better place. I’m proud he is my friend.
